Microsoft Slashes Surface RT Pricing to Compete with iPad Mini
Microsoft's Surface RT tablets haven't been doing so hot on the market, selling only 1.5 million units since launch back in October. The company has now slashed prices by $150 for both capacity 10.6-inch Surface RT tablets, making the 32GB $349 and the 64GB $449.
While the Surface RT is now only $20 more than Apple's iPad Mini, starting out at the same price as the iPad 4th generation, this doesn't mean that it's the best time to jump on this deal. Microsoft is expected to release a second generation of the Surface RT in the fall. Rumors claim that Microsoft will also be releasing smaller sizes of its flagship tablet.
